Product Description

This is the perfect opportunity here at The Woodturning Shop (Hampshire Sheen) to have a lesson with Emma Cook, The Tiny Turner, where she will guide you through casting and turning resin spheres. This course is designed for those with a reasonable amount of turning experience given the more technical nature of the tool work.

You will have a day packed with information and technique learning! You will learn about the processing and casting of resin blanks whilst casting your own sphere blank to take home at the end of the day. Emma will then demonstrate how to turn a sphere between centres before handing over to you to try it out for yourself on a timber blank.

After you have practised on the timber blank, you will swap over to one of Emma’s pre-cast resin blanks for you to turn from start to finish into a glorious sphere of your own.

Timings: 9.00am – 4pm (approx)

This course is ideal for students with a reasonable amount of woodturning experience looking to try something different.

    A fantastic inspiring day

    Emma is a great, encouraging and collaborative tutor. In just a day you manage to cast your own resin blank, make your own sphere holding centres, make a practice wooden sphere, then turn a resin/burr sphere from a choice of blanks Emma provides. Being extremely well organised and prepared, Emma helped me to get through a huge amount of learning and processes in the day. Given the multiple materials provided within the course fee, I rate this as extremely good value.
